Abstract (en)

The jacketing has a bellows-type part (10) with a collar-like ring-shaped section (14) at each end. An open clamp/press/shrink ring (20) resp. open hose clip, esp. multi crimp ring, on the end section is pre-tensioned in direction of the center, so that both ends (22,24) overlap and the ring/clip is automatically locked on the end section. Both ring ends have interlocking parts (23). The collar-like ring part has a retainer part (16) to hold it on the end section when in open non-mounted condition.

Abstract (de)

Eine Anordnung ist vorgesehen zum Ummanteln eines wellenartigen Organes und/oder einer gelenkartigen Verbindung zweier Wellen bzw. eines Lenkgetriebes, bestehend aus einem balgartigen Element (10). Das balgartige Element (10) weist je endständig einen kragenartigen, weitgehendst ringförmig ausgebildeten Abschnitt (14) auf, mit darauf angeordnet einem offenen Klemm-, Press- oder Schrumpfring (20) bzw. einer sogenannten offenen Schlauchklemme. Diese Schlauchklemme ist in Richtung Zentrum derart vorgespannt, dass sich die beiden offenen Enden (22, 24) gegenseitig überlappen, so dass der Ring bzw. die Klemme selbsttätig fest auf dem jeweiligen Abschnitt gehalten wird.
